Hope for the future

If CERN can make this work and its open source tools are picked up by other academic institutions then it is going to cost M$ far more than the phantom profit they were missing by classifying CERN as an academic institution.

Hopefully it will also introduce more people to linux before they are irredeemably brain damaged by the belief that they have to have Office because it is the "market leader" as one previous poster opined.
